Soupier Mac and Cheese

Rated as 4.43 out of 5 Stars

"My favorite mac and cheese recipe that I found in my mother's recipe box. I always double or triple this recipe. My family loves this recipe and rarely are there leftovers. It is just as good re-warmed and eaten the next day or so."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes; drain.
  3. Stir cream of mushroom soup, 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, milk, mustard, and pepper together in a large bowl; add macaroni and stir to coat. Pour macaroni mixture into a baking dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, top with remaining Cheddar cheese and French-fried onions, and continue baking until the cheese on top is melted completely, about 5 minutes more.
